How do you handle your wardrobe during a period of (fingers crossed!) on-going weight loss?

I am 1/3 of the way through a major weight-loss 'journey' (I hate that word but it is an accurate descriptor) - I've lost 20 lb and aim for 60. I have dropped a couple of UK sizes - 22 to 18 on top (I believe this is size 20 to 16 in US sizes), although my bottom half has not shrunk quite so quickly.
I really don't want to wait till I've lost all the weight to update my wardrobe as I look and feel terrible in baggy clothes, and I don't know how long it will take, but I feel like I am spending too much money because I am buying new clothes frequently. I've also had to make major purchases like a new winter coat etc because my old ones are too big for me now.
So I would like to know how other people handle this: how to look good while losing weight without bankrupting yourself on new clothes. I have zero sewing etc. skills and am terrible with my hands, so till date, taking clothes in myself has never been an option. But if that turns out to be the best option, I would learn.
I am a woman but welcome answers from dudes too.
